If there is one WNBA team that the city of Louisville can follow and root for, it’s definitely the Atlanta Dream. After all, they do have two of the best UofL women’s basketball players of all time on their team: Angel McCoughtry and now Shoni Schimmel. In the season opener Friday night, they led the Dream to a 79-75 win over the San Antonio Stars.

In her WNBA debut, Schimmel had a very good game with 7 points, 11 assists, 3 rebounds, and 2 steals in 30 minutes played. She was in for crunch time too. Very big night for the future Rookie of the Year (why not?).

McCoughtry was her usual self as she scored 21 points and also had 6 rebounds and 5 assists. Just par for the course for the two-time WNBA scoring champion.
